Cowboys releasing Tony Romo, won’t allow him to talk to NFC East

Even though the Eagles, Giants and Redskins all appear to be set at quarterback, the Cowboys are adding a cavaet to his impending release, likely to happen Thursday morning ahead of the start of NFL free agency — no talking to NFC East teams. This according to several NFL sources including Ian Rapoport.

Romo, who has already been succeeded by 2016 draft pick Dak Prescott, was the subject of numerous trade rumors — specifically ones involving the Denver Broncos.

But the Cowboys seem not to have any upper hand in trade negotiations, as teams seem to know Dallas will release him rather that pay him $14 million to sit on the bench in 2017.

Teams expected to be interested in his services include the Broncos, Texans, Bills, Jets and a few others.

He’ll join an ever-expanding list of recently dropped free agents looking for a new team, like Darrelle Revis, Adrian Peterson and Brandon Marshall ( who is signing with the Giants).
